    I'll probably lose my job if Romney gets elected, but I don't even care at this point.

    Some companies I deal (dealt) with at this point:
    Solyndra - $733M
    Fisker - $60M
    Tesla - $17M
    Abound Solar - $400M
    Beacon Power - $43M
    Tonopah Solar - $737M

    That's just the tip of the iceberg...

      But it was a Michigan Republican who was requesting that money for A123.

      I know, we want to blame the current leaders for our problems, but lets be honest folks, most of it goes way beyond the current leadership. Getting off topic, people want to blame Obama for the Libya terror attack, but if you look at history, there's been trouble in the Middle East since the late 40's and the formation of Israel and the 50's and 60's with the Palestinians. There were multiple attacks and even the kidnapping of a high-level CIA station chief during Reagan's watch There were multiple attacks during Clinton's presidency, Bush's, and Bush Jr. Doesn't mean it was their fault, just means that we were working with incomplete intel.

      Likewise with the bankruptcy of alternative technologies. Solyndra's failure was due to being unable to compete with low-cost Chinese imports, despite their product being more efficient. Granted, cutting edge tech does take a while to become cost-efficient, but if you're fighting an up-hill battle...

      A123 focused on batteries for the auto industry, specifically electric cars. Unfortunately, as long electric cars are the 'red-headed stepchild' of automobiles, the support for alt. technology will never be there. When the fit hits the shan and the price of oil goes through the roof, watch how fast money gets injected in to technologies like batteries, solar, wind and other renewable sources.

          The other day I was driving down the road behind a Jeep Liberty. Just above the "Liberty" on the back of the Jeep was an "Obama 2012" sticker...it was such a horrible contradiction that I smashed into the back of the jeep and shoved it off the road. Too bad, it was a pretty cool Jeep.

            LOL - you know how many times that exact thought has crossed my mind? My truck would start to look pretty bashed up because those stupid stickers are all over the place around here. I am fairly sure if you buy a Subaru or Prius the car comes with the sticker. Makes my stomach churn living in such a blue state. Heck - this stupid state would elect Mickey Mouse if he had a D next to his name.

              Oh, we'll still have our boats but not sure if I or anyone else can afford $8.00 a gallon of gas. I know I can feel the pain at the pump at $3.75, I couldn't imagine if it was north of $5.00.

                  Is it your understanding that the government controls the price of fuel? Big oil/big business/speculators and the free market drives fuel prices -- the first two are Romney's crowd. Romney is an *** clown.

                  Obama -- a Nobel peace prize recipient, with a kill list -- nice combo.

                      Subaru's are bad *** dude. I drive an STI. I also have a diesel Excursion (boat duty only) but the Subi...it's mean. Take some peptobismal and drink the cool-aid. Maybe Romney will solve your problems.

                          He (Romney) may not fix these problems, but it is clear that Obama isn't capable. Which means his a$$ has to go.........

                          If unemployment is higher and gas is double at the end of his four term then his a$$ will have to go too!

                            Didn't mean to insult your bada$$ sti. I will clarify my statement and not use Subaru generally and just say Outbacks.
                            Not drinking the Romney kool-aid either but I only get two choices. Who are you going to pick of the two??? Not much of an option......

                                My guess is that that Romney's cronies in the oil/gas sector help keep prices up to drive dissatisfaction and votes away from Obama (who isnt as friendly regarding domestic drilling, etc).

                                I remember buying a house 30 years ago when interest rates were ~ 14%. Real estate agent said don't worry, banks will bring the rates down during the upcoming election a few months away to help insure the current president would be re-elected. Refinanced in November of that year to a 7% rate!
